Warren Sink – As I sit at our plane’s terminal about to fly back to the United States, I can’t help, but think of the experience I had, here, in Haiti. It was, on the most basic level, enlightening. I’d be lying if I said I knew what I was getting into, when I told my parents that I wanted to come to Haiti on this mission trip. Quite frankly, nothing could really prepare me for what I saw in Port-au-Prince and Seguin. The incredible differences of the norm between home and Haiti are extremely apparent just by walking down one of Port-au-Prince’s dirt road streets. Never have I seen true poverty until this past week and seeing it with my own eyes is something I find too difficult to put in a paragraph let alone a sentence. I am grateful for this experience and I hope to be on mission trips like this in the future.
Lauren Buczkowski – It’s sad to think that I’ll be back in to United States in less than 3 hours. This trip has been everything I was hoping for and more. Leaving Seguin was extremely hard because I fell in love with the land and the people. The wonderful group of people on this trip will always hold a special place in my heart because they constantly put a smile on my face and experienced the amazing culture of Haiti with me. I have more than 1000 pictures, but every one of them has a different story and special meaning. I’ll cherish this trip forever and hope to be returning next year!
